This blog post describes how to download the PeopleTools version 8.60 and upgrade an older version through the Cloud Manager.

If you are not familiar with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and PeopleSoft Cloud Manager, then please go through the links below.

If you are using an earlier image of Cloud Manager, then upgrade to image 14 using the instructions described in the online help.

Once your Cloud Manager instance is upgraded to image  14, please follow the steps outlined below to automatically download PeopleTools 8.60 and then upgrade your environment using Cloud Manager’s auto upgrade feature.

1. Prerequisite 

For upgrading PUM full tier environments to PeopleTools 8.60, first, verify the OCI shape configuration of the environment. If the shape configuration is lower than VM.Standard2.2, then scale up the shape to VM.Standard2.2 through OCI Console before starting the PeopleTools upgrade.

Steps to do vertical shape scale up using OCI console:

  1.     Open the navigation menu and click Compute. Under Compute, click Instances.
  2.     Click the instance that you're interested in.
  3.     Click More Actions, and then click Edit.
  4.     Click Edit shape.
  5.     Select 'VM.Standard2.2' shape
  6.     Click Save changes. If the instance is running, it is rebooted. Confirm when prompted.
  7.     Then wait for instance state until its in RUNNING status.
